We Were Made To Be Courageous! 1st Timothy 6:12

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6

If you follow Devotions for Teachers, then you know I open the video portion of each blog post with a snippet of the song Courageous, by Casting Crowns. Teachers, now more than ever, need to be courageous!  There’s a war going on for the souls of our students, our schools, our families, and our nation for that matter. It is daunting to say the least. Therefore, we need courage, not fear, to drive us on toward victory!

Teachers, what you do is so importantyou and I are the foot soldiers in this war!  In order to cheer you on in battle, I’m posting the lyrics to the song – but tweaking them just a bit in order to speak to your teacher’s soul.  Then, I’m posting the video of the song for you to watch and sing along with, using the teachers’ lyrics of course!

My fellow teachers, fight the good fight of faith!  We were made to be courageous!

God Bless

“Courageous”

We were made to be courageous
We were made to lead the way
We could be the generation
That finally breaks the chains
We were made to be courageous
We were made to be courageous
We were warriors on the front lines
Standing, unafraid
But now we’re watchers on the sidelines
While our students slip away
Where are you, teachers of courage?
You were made for so much more
Let the pounding of our hearts cry
We will serve the Lord
We were made to be courageous
And we’re taking back the fight
We were made to be courageous
And it starts with us tonight
The only way we’ll ever stand
Is on our knees with lifted hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous
This is our resolution
Our answer to the call
We will love Christ and our students
We refuse to let them fall
We will reignite the passion
That we buried deep inside
May the watchers become warriors
Let the teachers of God arise
We were made to be courageous
And we’re taking back the fight
We were made to be courageous
And it starts with us tonight
The only way we’ll ever stand
Is on our knees with lifted hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageousSeek justice
Love mercy
Walk humbly with your God

In the war of the mind
I will make my stand
In the battle of the heart
And the battle of the hand

In the war of the mind
I will make my stand
In the battle of the heart
And the battle of the hand

We were made to be courageous
And we’re taking back the fight
We were made to be courageous
And it starts with us tonight

The only way we’ll ever stand
Is on our knees with lifted hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous

We were made to be courageous
Lord, make us courageous
